Murder Mystery is back

After last autumn’s sell-out evening, join us once again for a fiendish and fun charity fundraiser.

The venue is The Potters Heron hotel with a two-course dinner included, and will raise important funds to support people with learning disabilities.

In this immersive murder mystery, the year is 1925 and a period that will become known as The Roaring 20s has just begun. This would all end with the Wall Street Crash of 1929, but for now, society is in the grip of a celebratory mood. Join us for the party.

Watch live actors play out scenes, while you enjoy dinner served at your table. Interrogate the characters and uncover the clues, before offering your solutions to solve the crime.

Minstead Stories

Be inspired by the stories of some of the people we support

'I found lockdown really stressful, couldn't get out and about as I can't walk far with my disability.

'I really missed going to Minstead. I was over the moon when I could come back!

'I come here because I enjoy it and I meet a lot of people - new people.

'I'm outgoing and I like doing arts and crafts, a bit of sewing now and again when I can with my arthritis.

'It makes me feel happy to come here - really happy!'

'I’ve found it very challenging with the coronavirus.

'I felt sad during lockdown initially. I couldn’t go out for lunch at the weekend, I couldn’t see my friends and family.

'I was sad not to have Easter with my family at home. I’ve been feeling anxious and sad about it all.

'I have found my time at Furzey therapeutic. I like potting, pricking out and collecting and sowing the seeds.'

It has been a brilliant year, working in the gardens.

I enjoyed cutting the pumpkins for harvest.

I have started work at Paulton’s Park in the restaurant, it’s going really brilliant. I do it Friday and Sunday and we are seeing how it goes to see if I will do more days. It is my very first paid job.
